FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: April Babcock
More than 71,000 lives were lost in 2021 to fentanyl poisoning alone.
America, especially its youth, is being threatened from within, a threat that should not be underestimated.
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid 50 to 100 times more potent than heroin. Just 2 milligrams of illicit fentanyl can be fatal.
According to statistics released by The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in March 2022, fentanyl poisoning is now the leading cause of death for adults ages 18-45. Per the Drug Enforcement Administration Administrator, Anne Milgram, “Fentanyl is the single deadliest drug threat our nation has ever encountered. We must take every opportunity to spread the word.”
Lost Voices of Fentanyl (LVOF), is a non-profit group founded by bereaved mother, April Babcock, and comprised of more than 18,000 family members who are devoted to illicit fentanyl awareness, prevention, and education.
LVOF’s Second Annual National Rally to STOP Illicit Fentanyl Poisonings will be held on Sept 17, 2022, in front of the White House from 12 p.m.-3 p.m. A March of Unity will start at 11:40 am at The National Mall 12th street and end at The White House.
An exhibit of our victim banners will be on display at the National Mall on the 12th Street gravel area from 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
